Have you always wanted to ask me something?
Now is your chance, there won't be another!
(ok, ok, there will)

Hit me up in the comment section with a question and I will do my best to answer it. I post a new AMA post every 2 months or so.

What is an AMA?

AMA is a format popular on Reddit where one person offers to answer questions for a limited period of time.

How long will I answer questions?

I will usually answer them pretty quickly, and I should be around for a few hours. I will continue to answer them as they come in.

What type of questions can you ask?

I'm open to pretty much anything but my interest fall in the following categories:

  • Hive
  • Hive Witness
  • Crypto
  • Gaming (Video & Board)
  • Saving my team in Hunt: Showdown
  • Photography
  • Development
  • Technology
  • Productivity
  • Movies & TV
  • Comedy
  • Memes
  • Waiting for GPUs to come in stock

Don't feel limited to the above categories, just things I generally know about.


Oh and look at my friends kitten I'm totally not going to take home with me.

This AMA brought to you by If I killed someone for you by Alec Benjamin

So let's get this shit started!

So... Cats > Dogs?

 2 months ago (edited)

Dogs, but I own a cat.
Why not food related? Hopefully you don't mean to eat.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

OMG NO! do not eat the cats or the dogs please! I was going to do a food related one, but then saw the cute kitten pic and wonder...

Oh but now i have a better one, could you eat something you had have as a pet? like a chicken or a pig?

pigs, seem to be extremely smart.

lol 😆 don't eat your cat, take your neighbors, obviously.

Hey Mark,I admire your blog What do you think about meme coins, do you think they will be take. Seriously eventually?

Posted via

Meme coins are awesome, people should have fun.

Doge is a meme coin, and is being taken very seriously. Many millionaires were made overnight.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

when more memes/ deepfakes. I wait for all covid for new ones.

You know, I need them! :)

Probably not for a while, I'm kind of out of that phase and there are not a lot of images of people we all know here to work off.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That sounds like a good reason :)

Another question,

do you plan anything cool the next time on Hive like a dapp or something like that?

Will the Snydercut ever be given a sequel?

Honestly, I haven't seen Justice League yet. I usually save these types of movies to watch with my son and we just haven't got to this one yet. There are a few other movies I wanted to see with him in the universe before this. We have kept up with Marvel though.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

I see. Enjoy when you get to it. As for marvel i got marvel though I will try and catch up soon.

I think Warner Bros doesn't like the Snyder cut or Snyder himself. It's not likely they'll make it happen, but they said the same thing about the Snyder happened. If the momentum for the Snyderverse continues or rises, then that will happen too.

Posted via

Yeah hopefully the momentum will win out. Would suck if it didnt, just when DC was finally onto something

I think it will. Once the final tally's are made, Warner will cave. Someone will pick up the Snyderverse. I have no doubt. I do, however, have no idea when that will happen. Hopefully soon enough that the actors don't age too much.

Hey Mark! Have you ever worked on a project that you were super proud of, but just didn't make the impact you were hoping for?

Of course, I think most people have. Not everything is a smashing success.

I am a firm believer in the mentality Fail fast, fail often.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

That's awesome! Obviously the world has progressed at such an incredible rate because of this kind of mentality... it's so much healthier than always trying to be perfect.

As an IT Security guy though, it does pain me a little though, because not enough people go back to properly secure the thing that did end up succeeding... although I guess if they did I'd be out of a job.

Thanks for your reply!

As an IT person, I get triggered by the fact backups are always the last thing considered.

Do you like pineapples on Pizza?

And what anime do you watch?

Do you like pineapples on Pizza?

Hell yas!

And what anime do you watch?

None specifically, I have no particular interest in or against anime, but if something catches my interest that is in anime form, I have no problems.

For example,

Cowboy Bebop as it is like Firefly
Dragon's Dogmas as I love the game
The Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Fury as it is part of the Riddick story line

But I wouldn't see a new anime and think, oh I need to watch that! I have to have another reason to want to.

Hi dear, how are you doing? Who's the little kitty? How you balance personal life and work? Aren't you addictive to Hive?

Our friend rescued two kittens, this is one of them, the other one was really sick and had to be brought to the doctors to take care of.

As I own my own company and it is 99% automated, work is fairly easy. I am free to spend my time as I choose for the most part.

I probably am addicted to Hive.

What's your predictions for Hive and BTC price in 2022. Can Hive reach $1 in near future? Also, please share one secret of becoming successful on Hive😊🙏

What's your predictions for Hive and BTC price in 2022.

I don’t predict prices, I think anyone who says they know where a token will go in the future is full of shit.

Can Hive reach $1 in near future?

Anything is possible in crypto.

Also, please share one secret of becoming successful on Hive😊🙏

Like any social network, consistency. Posting on a regular basis, engaging on a regular basis, and responding to comments. Always offer value and don’t sell you.

Thanks dear. This is really nice of you, taking out time for interaction with us. Did you get vaccinated? How's covid situation around you?

Yes I am vaccinated. Some issues in family with Covid. Not to bad as we have all taken precautions.

That's great. Best Wishes and regards. Have a Great Day 😊👍

No questions here. Never mind me. I'm just gonna sit here and be mesmerized by those gorram gorgeous galaxies for eyes.. ^^


Your dad jokes are of high calibre, what is the source of your greatness and will you offer a weekly or monthly dad joke blog?

I pick them up around the way, plus they drive my son crazy so win win.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

They're great! Keep them up. I enjoy your taking the piss comments. I look forward to them.

Thank you

What is the state of abuse in the hive?

Fraud will always be with us, but is farming to the point that it is becoming inconsequential?

I'm not really into anti abuse now outside of using my voting power how I see fit. That being said, it is certainly less than it was on Steem but it still happens. What is more common is just shitty voting.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Hey Marky, Will you watch the movie Dune when it's released? If so Theatre or Home?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Hell ya I will. Most likely theater.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Other than BTC, hive and he tokens, what else do you hold?

ETH, REN, Gods Unchained Cards, UNI, BAT.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Would you say your hair is better than, as good as, or worse than Ned's?

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Definitely worse.

I would have to answer "Not Applicable".

Here is another one more serious:

If you had to pick one thing, what is it that most excites you about the future of Hive?

Major hole in the ecosystem right now.

Hi, I love photography, I'm not a professional, just an amateur, I see that one of your interests is photography. My question is. Do you take the photos for all your posts? I also wanted to thank you for supporting my posts. Thank you very much!

I mostly only take pictures of family. As for posts 99% of the time I get a cc0 image from pixabay. I don’t do as much photography these days and mostly end up using my iPhone instead of my Canon 5D Mk III.

Usually we always take pictures with cell phones, besides that they take impressive pictures we always have it at hand, it's quick and easy. I also use my cell phone more than my camera, but I like the pictures from my camera better. Enjoy your family. Have a wonderful rest of the day wherever you are. 🤗

i have 500 HP to delegate to somebody. i want to help the community but i also want a good return on investment. who should i choose and why

I think that is something you should decide for yourself. With Hard fork 25, I would recommend trailing voters you trust over delegating. This gives you more flexibility and highest return.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

ok thanks i will look into that

Why, just why and why is the answer 42... ?

I don't believe the answer was ever revealed but the best guess is Ascii code 42 which is the asterisk, representing the *, or wild card. Basically saying life is what you make of it.

Oh, I never thought about that. That totally makes sense.

That answer is great, that actually makes sense

What keeps a bad rpc node from mucking up the data?


So, one couldn't hijack my payment by changing the address?

No because the signature would fail.

Good deal, thanks.

I watched all your Movie recommendations and they were all pretty impressive. So naturally, I'll stick to that topic, which series or movies did I miss 2020/2021 and just really have to watch?

There isn't a lot new in 2020/2021 for TV and Movies that I want to see. I've seen most of what I want to from these years, but I do want to see the movie Nobody.

Posted Using LeoFinance Beta

Nobody, I see

Don’t bother, it sucks, watch breaking bad and better call Saul instead


Who's the funniest person ever been born onto this blue-green earthball?

I think Ricky Gervais is pretty funny, not sure I'd say the funniest though.

What is your method for curation on hive, do you run your own bot service?

I vote for people I feel like voting for, I downvote what I feel should be downvoted. I do have a server running to automate some of my voting based on a curated list of users.

Saludos, @themarkymark, diariamente en mi wallet llega un depósito de 0.001 HIVE from dhedge-drips. Dice Your daily DHEDGE drip for HIVE based on 25.01826559 DHEDGE with 0.00723215 % share. Yo no se cómo obtuve esos 25 dhedge que se mencionan allí, deseo saber cómo los obtuve para realizar la misma acción, obtener más dhedge y así que mis intereses sean mayores. Me imagino que entré en un concurso o coloqué una etiqueta o publiqué algo en una comunidad donde obtuve esos 25 dhedge. Veo que usted está muy informado sobre los tokens ¿Podría ayudarme? Gracias anticipadas.

How do we get diamonds on HIVE?

PeakD has a nice tip system, not as frictionless but Hive is more secure so it isn’t as easy.

Why did Vitalik list Steem in front of HIVE though?

My guess is because Steem is more well known than Hive.

As far as I have seen, there is no way to edit. You can hide (still visible via block explorer), but that's it.
